The warm temps spelled trouble for the Real Street class. The temps meant Bruce Hemminger's nitrous ride was going to fly. His 9.51 qualifying hit at "only" 139 mph landed him in the top spot, and then Jim Pickel was unable to make the call for Round 1. Then Bruce had a bye run into the final. He wasn't wasting those testing opportunities, either. He ran a 9.54 to make sure all was right, and then a 9.53 with a zero over Tim Matherly's 9.53 with a 7 in the final to take the win.
